Powerful Powder Rooms

Today, hall baths are much more than a room to powder your nose. Typically located on the first floor, this is a room that your guests will often see. Homeowners take this opportunity to showcase their individual personalities. Whether you’re inspired by an English pub or an original stained glass window, no two powder rooms are the same. Another source of inspiration may stem from the recent influx of unique and ornate sinks. Gone are the days of plain white porcelain bowls. Bring on the glitzy and glamorous vessels that command the attention of the entire room. Try a mixture of colorful and texturized tile to strengthen the room. These tiles can be used as an intricate floor piece, a fun backsplash or even as a floor to ceiling wallcovering. Need some inspiration of your own? Take a look at eleven of Housetrends staffs’ favorite powder rooms.
